I still believe there would be a place for low range EVs and less environmental impact. The percentage of Australians living in cities is over 86%. So an EV with range of only 120km (the first gen leaf) would suit a fair proportion of us as the commute vehicle. Telsa have upped the expectations by providing 400+ km range, and now it seems we all need that range for EVs to be viable? I predict that there will be low range options available to us (again) when the supply of materials to make those 75+kwh battery packs becomes problematic and we are offered 24kwh packs in cheaper entry level city cars. 120km would even get me to the beach if there is a charge point at the carpark.
